Fishing updates

The cut is fishing okay at the moment albeit mostly jacks.The main lake is weedy on the bottem and seems very slow and hard going still. Floating small baits midwater seems to be the way to go at the moment on both the cut and on the main lake.

Due to all the flooding in the area Fairburn is at the moment unfishable.

The main road from Castleford/Allerton/kippax/Leeds is still under flood water.

The lake itself is in an extreme high water level making it both unfishable and very dangerous therfore the water is closed to Fishing  for now.

It as come to our attention that many are still fishing this water with expired permits. If these people are found they will be permanently barred from rejoining at a later date and reported  to the relevant authorities as poaching on water's without permission.
I class these people as stealing the rights to fish of  fellow members and as which a firm stance will be taken.
